Most landlord/tenant issues can be avoided when leases and contracts are well-prepared and both sides are clear about responsibilities and expectations. However, even when there are leases in place, landlord/tenant disputes or a landlord's disregard for outlined responsibilities can occur and require legal intervention. Apartment tenants in Michigan are currently dealing with a landlord who allegedly did not live up to his responsibilities, and they claim they are being evicted as a result.
The apartment complex residents say they have been served with eviction notices. The township has declared the building to be unsafe. The residents of the 12-apartment complex say this is the result of the landlord not fixing the apartment complex as he should.
